Breath Holding Spells

As Salam Reader,

Terlebih dahulu aku nak ucapkan selamat berpuasa kat korang2 semua. Semoga amal ibadah kita di terima di bulan yang mulia ini. Amin

20 Ramadhan baru sempat nak wish kat korang, baru sempat nak update blog. hukhuk
Banyak benda berlaku awal-awal ramadhan hari tu. Takpelah, aku redha dengan ketentuanMu. Semua tu ada hikmahkan =) 

Awal Ramadhan hari tu aku berkampung kat demc dari hari Rabu sampailah Sabtu petang sebab Asyraf demam on off and darah putih tinggi sikit and one more thing yang paling sedih hati ni Asyraf ada symptoms breath holding spells. Seriously ni la 1st time aku dengar pasal symptom ni.

Bulan lepas 1st time jadi kat Asyraf. Masa tu kitaorang memang panic dok jerit-jerit panggil Asyraf banyak kali sebab tengok dia kaku sambil mata layu aje. Asyraf tak bergerak langsung, even anak mata pun tak bergerak and paling ngeri muka jadi biru. Hubby dok tepuk belakang Asyraf tapi still no respond. Aku memang gelabah nak mati panggil Asyraf sambil korek mulut dia dan tetiba je dia macam tersedar and terus menangis. Tapi lepas tu kaku semula. Aku terus bawak pi sinki and terus basuhkan muka kepala dia. Time tu la Asyraf menangis tapi dalam keadaan lemah. fuhhhh! Kalaulah korang boleh scan jantung aku ni, mau hilang degup kot hukhuk! Malam tu jugak kitaorang pergi poliklinik sheikh and Doc cakap tu normal, bukan sawan or tarik. Maybe sebab Asyraf demam and badan lemah. OK kira legalah sikit dengar explanation dari Doc.

Lepas tu kerap jadi and paling worst sehari sebelum puasa. Time tu Asyraf demam and kebetulan kitaorang kat rumah mertua. Aku pi tandas, jadi. Aku pi buang pampers pun jadi gak sampaikan mak abah adik beradik yang lain takut tengok keadaan Asyraf. Pantang tak nampak aku je mesti jadi hukhuk! Asyraf akan menangis sekuat hati tapi tak keluar suara and at the same time dia akan keraskan badan. Bila jadi gitu, aku memang asyiklah ulang alik berlari pi basahkan muka, kepala dia :(

Abah soh bawak pi hospital malam tu gak. So pukul 12.30am kitaorang terus pi DEMC. Doc advised duduk wad untuk pantau keadaaan Asyraf. Kitaorang tak fikir panjang n terus iyakan aje. Masa nurse nak cucuk drip kat tangan jadi lagi. Tp nurse ni macam hampeh hampas kelapa sesangat! OK malas nak cerita perangai dia tu huhu! Bila aku dah calm kan Asyraf nurse tu panggil Doc pulak. eleh! tak berani buat la tu kan prftttttttttttttttt!

Pungpangpungpang pukul 3am baru dapat wad. Ya Allah rasa nak nangis pun ada bila terfikir terpaksa berjauhan kejap dengan Alisha and hubby. Dah la esoknya puasa. Hubby balik rumah jap packing baju bajan kitaorang and terus beli makanan untuk sahur. Pukul 4.30am camtu hubby sampai semula. Kesian gila tengok muka hubby dengan kelek Alishanya, dengan begnya, dengan makanannya :( :( :(

Pukul 8am gitu Doc Ahmad datang and kitaorang explained dari A to Z kat Doc. Doc cakap ni symptom Breath Holding Spell. Asyraf akan menangis sambil tahan nafas sampai muka jadi biru. Sometime symptom ni mai bila dia rasa tak selamat, rasa takut, trauma or jatuh. Even berak sembelit pun boleh jadi uuuuuu.

So untuk avoid benda ni:
  • parents kena rileks, pangku, peluk, pujuk and calm kan anak and nanti akan nampak dada dia berombak bernafas semula.
  • Waktu ni memang anak nampak penat and tidur. So biarkan aje dia tidur. 
  • Tak perlu basuh dengan air ke korek mulut ke ape ke. Just pangku, peluk and pujuk anak semula. 
  • Paling penting ibu kena sentiasa ada dekat anak untuk elakkan benda ni kerap berlaku. 

Sobs sobs sobs! Masa Doc explained tu aku rasa macam hilang sekejap nikmat yang Allah bagi pinjam selama ni. Seriously rasa tak kuat bebenornya bila Asyraf kerap jadi camtu. Nasib baiklah hidup aku dikelilingi dengan hubby, family and kawan2 yang tak lekang bagi kata semangat. Terima kasih tau korang tak putus2 doakan kesihatan Asyraf. 
Selama 3 hari duduk wad, kerap jugaklah Asyraf jadi gitu. nampak nurse ke nampak doctor ke pendek kata nampak muka tak kenal mesti nangis tak keluar suara sambil telan air liur. lepas2 tu mesti jadi gitu semula..hukhuk sedihnya tengok dia jadi biru-biru ni :( :( :(


gini ah muka asyraf kalau symptom tu mai :( :(

Muhammad Asyraf Haikal,
Ibu doakan awak di beri tubuh badan yang sihat
Ibu doakan awak cergas macam anak-anak yang lain
Ibu doakan awak kuat kuat dan terus kuat untuk hari seterusnya
Ibu sayang awak sangat-sangat
Ibu senantiasa ada untuk awak



kat bawah ni aku bagi sedikit info mengenai breath holding spell ni. Korang boleh baca slow-slow k =)

What is a breath-holding spell?

A breath-holding spell is when your child holds his breath until he passes out. Breath-holding spells begin between the ages of 6� months and 2 years. They occur only while the child is awake.
During a breath-holding spell:
  • Your child may make 1 or 2 cries and then hold his breath until he becomes blue around the lips and passes out.
  • Your child may stiffen and may have a few twitches or muscle jerks.
  • Your child will breathe normally again and become fully alert in less than 1� minute.

What is the cause?

An abnormal reflex allows 5% of normal children to hold their breath long enough to pass out. It is not deliberate. These spells can be triggered by frustration, a fall, or something frightening.
Holding the breath (when frustrated) and becoming bluish without passing out is such a common reaction in young infants that it is not considered abnormal.

How long does it last?

Breath-holding spells usually occur from 1 or 2 times a day to 1 or 2 times a month. Children usually stop having breath-holding spells by the time they are 4 or 5� years old.
Breath-holding spells are not dangerous, and they don't lead to epilepsy or brain damage.

How can I take care of my child?

  • Treatment during attacks of breath-holding These attacks are harmless and stop by themselves. Time the length of a few attacks, using a watch with a second hand.
    During an attack, do not hold your child upright. Instead, he should lie flat. This position will increase blood flow to the brain and may prevent some of the muscle jerking. Put a cold wet washcloth on your child's forehead until he starts breathing again. Don't start resuscitation or call a rescue squad—it's not necessary. Also, don't put anything in your child's mouth because it could make him choke or vomit.
  • Treatment after attacks of breath-holding Give your child a brief hug and go about your business. A relaxed attitude is best. If you are frightened, don't let your child know it. If your child had a temper tantrum because he wanted his way, don't give in to him after the attack.
  • Prevention of injuriesThe main injury risk of a breath-holding spell is a head injury. If your child starts to have an attack while standing near a hard surface, go to him quickly and help lower him to the floor.

What can I do to help prevent breath-holding spells?

Most attacks from falling down or a sudden fright can't be prevented. Neither can most attacks that are triggered by anger. However, some children can be distracted from their breath-holding if you intervene before they become blue. Tell your child to come to you for a hug or to look at something interesting. Ask him if he wants a drink of juice or his favorite fluid.
If your child is having attacks every day, he probably has learned to trigger some of the attacks himself. This can happen when parents run to the child and pick him up every time he starts to cry, or when they give him his way as soon as the attack is over. Avoid these responses. Frequent attacks can also be caused by anemia. If your child has a poor iron intake (eats few meats), ask your healthcare provider to check your child for anemia.
